We were out working in the yard and saw several bumble bees, yellow jackets, and other assorted bees (that I can't name) all over this plant.
They were barely moving, and at first I thought they were all dead.
Surprisingly, we still haven't had our first freeze, but it's been cold at night - in the low 30s.
I blew on this guy to see what he would do, and he barely lifted a leg. But lift, he did.
You gotta hand it to them - toughing it out to the very end of the nice weather.
